At 10 years old, I wrote a childrens story about a little girl(myself) with many creative ideas about what she wanted to be one day. After imagining all of her possibilities, she decides that what is most important is to be herself. I am now 32 years old and I have spent the past eight years working with young women and helping them through the variety of issues faced during this crucial time period. As a gift for my 30th birthday my grandmother, a proffesional artist, illustrated my award winning story from 20 years ago. I now read the story to 2nd grade classrooms but i would love to take this up a notch by self-publishing the book and hopefully reaching a wider audience. I have been very proud to have a career that encourages young women to not only BE themselves, but to take the time to SEARCH for themselves as well. Publishing this story is not only a dream of mine but encompasses the message I currently send- To dream from what's Tattooed on your heart.
$10 -$25: A personal hand-written thank you letter
$50: The above and also a signed copy of the book.
$100: All of the above plus your name listed on a thank-you page insde the book.
$500: All of the above plus a private reading if within 600 mile radius. If outside a 600 mile radius, all of the above plus a private reading through Skype or Facetime.
I have currently saved the majority of the funds needed and Im hoping for a little help with the rest. I truly appreciate any help in achieving this goal. It has not only been a dream of mine but publishing this story will also set an example to the young women I reach out to.
